We waited several months to test out CPK's 2nd attempt at a gluten free menu, to make sure others had a positive experience. Happy to say, after trying today, we were very impressed! They were confident and consistent in their responses to all of my questions...from the hosts, to the waitstaff to the servers...so it was clear to me that they have done a nice job of training. My celiac son had the pepperoni pizza and loved it! (See pic) Other than the 4 GF pizzas, there are a few salads that are GF, clearly marked with a green "O" on the menu. We felt very comfortable here, and so far my son feels no ill effects.

I had the GF pizza on the new menu and it's great! My server, Rocky was so helpful. She made sure that all my choices came from the certified gluten free section. I actually feel like a normal person here!

Although it sometimes takes a little longer to get your GF order, it is definitely worth it. We go pretty often and my daughter is always happy with her pizza. The managers there are wonderful and always check on you and bring the food when you order GF. Definitely worth a trip to the mall just for this restaurant.

They follow very strict procedures here - change gloves, prepare separately - everything. Four GF pizzas on the menu and they're all really good.

They really need to work on their GF offerings, salads and vegetables just don't cut it anymore.

While I appreciate the GF labels on the menu, they only apply to salads. Nothing else. As a restaurant that specializes in gourmet pizza, it's difficult as a diner to patronize when you can't have any of the good stuff. So disappointed!

We ate here because our flight got in late and we were too tired and hungry to search further. My husband and I split a pizza and each had a wedge salad. I realize it’s a chain but man, no thought or love went into the food. On the bright side, the place was dirty and smelled like an old dishrag.

Awesome experience multiple times. They have a separate counter for preparing GF pizza and the certified GF ingredients are kept separate. Never had a reaction. They follow ultimate safety practices.
